On February 6th 2015 the International Charter Expo was held in Opatija, Croatia in Marino Cvetković Expo Hall.
Being cost effective and focused, this is an affordable and unavoidable event for charter stakeholders. Often copied, never duplicated, as an earlier Harley-Davidson commercial says 🙂
Very nice idea and a great chance to meet ones partners and to discuss the very important themes and matters.
Very well organised and a great way to generate business! Keep up the good work!
It was the best – I have ever seen. Thank you!
Everybody who is in the business was there, therefore thumbs up.
I’m very satisfied about the expo because is a unique occasion to meet so many partner in a relaxing enviroment e without the crowd tipical of boat shows.
Saturday party was amazing! Everyone was at the party, it was so crowded. We met and spoke much with people and little dance! 🙂 Service quality and limitless drink was very wonderful.
I found the Show excellent and well worth the visit and thank you again to everyone involved for all their hard work
From the registration, arrival, accommodation to the expo, everything was remarkably organized, the staff was incredibly nice and helpful and we are looking forward to the next year.
Great job as expected.
Registering was fast and effective.
Just love it and I definitely consider to get back for 2016. ICE ICE Baby!
Very good organisation; Opatija as a great location; met lots of new people; did a great business; had lots of fun…
Excellent idea, our company completely support event. All people included in this area should be included and will contribute to growing of the event. We support continuity of Expo and will come on next ICE.
All the best…see you next year!
Great event! Thank you for all! Keep the way, it is a very good one!
Most important and and best show for us! Looking forward to 2016!
Croatia needs this show. I have to say we were very pleasantly surprised with everything (organization, show itself, energy there). We will for sure be back next year, probably with our own booth.
We think that B2B will become more important for the operator than a Boat Show. For us this was the first time and at the end we will be partially satisfied. We enjoy the time in Opatija and generally we appreciate the organization’s commitment.
Very well done and easy to meet with people. We made great contacts. All in all a very successful few days.
Meeting people face to face is a great opportunity. We did appreciate the presence of many international operators.
With a central location, Opatija is easy to reach from many major European cities and airports. The city’s mild climate makes the region an enjoyable stay all year around.
In addition to being popular as a destination for wellness and spa tourism, Opatija is becoming famous business destination for congress tourism.
Add in the coastal promenade Lungomare, clean beaches, green parks, fine dining and the cultural aspect, and you get a city packed with enjoyable and entertaining options. Countless monuments and sites fill the city including Villa Angiolina, St. Jacob’s Church, Slatina Fountain and the Croatian Walk of Fame, among many others.
It is a great opportunity to meet the exhibitors in person. Everybody takes the time for talks. It was really great!
We are very satisfied from the meetings we had during the expo.
We were stuck at the airport due to heavy snow fall, but the ICE Crew was great. The girls had everything under control and did their best to satisfy everybody.
Odlična organizacija i vrhunsko osoblje! Za razliku od Zagreba 2014. godine, ovaj party je organiziran odlično! Prostor na više nivoa je bio odličan izbor i DJ koji je znao svoj posao!

Excellent, made me dance after after long long time!
Sve je bilo odlično – atmosfera, druženje i što je najbitnije ostvaren je cilj Expo-a, profesionalna komunikacija između sudionika i brokera
I have to notice that you are extremely professional! Congratulations and keep strong! We hope to see you next year! We enjoyed a lot the event and the nice Opatija. Perfect atmosphere!
